Last call for C-Kermit 7.0 binaries

Last call for C-Kermit 7.0 binaries

Post by Frank da Cr » Mon, 24 Jan 2000 04:00:00



Well, maybe not *last* call...  But since the C-Kermit 7.0 announcement
on new year's day, I haven't heard from anybody building it on MkLinux,
LinuxPPP, or Linux/m68k.  The C-Kermit 7.0 site is:

  http://www.columbia.edu/kermit/ckermit.html

Here's how to do it:

  ftp kermit.columbia.edu
  user anonymous, password is your email address
  cd kermit/archives
  bin
  get cku196.tar.gz
  bye

  gunzip cku196.tar.gz
  tar xf cku196.tar
  make linux

(If you have any trouble with "make linux", try "make mklinux" or other
Linux-related target; let me know.)

To send in the binary:

  cp wermit cku196.linux-ppc-xxxv.v
                   ^^^^^ ^^^ ^^^^^^
                     A    B    C

A = makefile target (linux, mklinux, etc).
B = architecture (ppc, m68k, i386, sparc, alpha, etc).
C = is some indication of your Linux distribution and version,
     like "rh6.1" for Red Hat 6.1.

Then:

  ftp kermit.columbia.edu
  user anonymous, password is your email address
  cd kermit/incoming
  bin
  put cku196.linux-etc-etc <-- whatever the filename is
  bye

We have more than 220 C-Kermit 7.0 binaries so far.  Let's make sure
Linux on PPC and m68k does not go unrepresented.

Thanks!

1. Last call for C-Kermit 7.0 binaries

Well, maybe not *last* call...  But since the C-Kermit 7.0 announcement
on new year's day, I haven't heard from anybody building it on an Alpha.
The C-Kermit 7.0 site is:

  http://www.columbia.edu/kermit/ckermit.html

Here's how to do it:

  ftp kermit.columbia.edu
  user anonymous, password is your email address
  cd kermit/archives
  bin
  get cku196.tar.gz
  bye

  gunzip cku196.tar.gz
  tar xf cku196.tar
  make linux

(If any trouble occurs during the build, let me know.)

To send in the binary:

  cp wermit cku196.linux-alpha-xxv.v

where xxv.v is some indication of your Linux distribution and version,
like "rh6.1" for Red Hat 6.1 or "db2.1" for Debian 2.1.

Then:

  ftp kermit.columbia.edu
  user anonymous, password is your email address
  cd kermit/incoming
  bin
  put cku196.linux-alpha-rh6.1 <-- (or whatever the filename is)
  bye

We have more than 220 C-Kermit 7.0 binaries so far.  Let's make sure
Linux on the Alpha does not go unrepresented.

Thanks!
